It’s so easy to make these cookies, but you need some patience since you need to wait the cookie batter in the refrigerator at least for 4 hours. It’s better if you make it overnight and wait until morning. Don’t get afraid when you see that the batter is so wet, it gets stiff and easy to shape as it is chilled.

Crackle top of these brownie cookies comes from icing sugar. It is optional to make this topping, but I do love those white crackles on them. Don’t you think they look so cute this way?

Make mini balls from the batter and place them in the baking pan 2 inches apart since they rise very well and flatten when baking. You don’t need to use all the batter at one time, you can keep it in the refrigerator for a few days and bake when needed.

    Great idea to make cookies from brownie batter!
    Interesting, that you mention that refrigerating the dough overnight enhances the taste of the cookies. I retard my bread doughs always in the fridge – with great results. I heard about the benefits of treating cookie batter the same way from NY Times “World’s Best Chocolate Cookies”. They taste best after 3 days of refrigerating the dough. And they are really good! (

    Can you give the amount of butter and chocolate in “cups” or “ounces”.

  3. Charlene says

    Are you absolutely certain “½ cup icing sugar” is to be used in the cookie dough? I blindly followed the recipe and the result turned up extremely dry and flaky. Did not work out at all…….

      You’re supposed to roll the cookies in the icing sugar before baking, you don’t put the sugar into the batter
